Research Corner

Today I am pleased to publish another post that might help U.S. Americans who are unable to leave the country but are looking to maintain an active research agenda. Can you help contribute to this discussion on Research Corner? Or do you have other ideas about research in or on Latin America that you would like to publish? I am nearing the end of my pile of edited drafts and hope to receive more in December or January to get me set up for the spring.
